STOP PRESS: First awards for the Apter Development ILM endorsed Leadership Programme
14 Managers from Scania (GB) and their independent dealer network recently completed our Advance Leadership Development Programme leading to an award from the Institute of Leadership and Management.
Participants undertook a challenging five-day work-out that provided an intensive rehearsal of the real challenges they face back at work (the programme blends the latest insights from performance psychology, coaching and experiential learning; providing real-time feedback and support).
On the programme participants focussed on those things that make the essential difference to their performance and the business. The workout was held over a five-day* period in Lake District and, alongside significant changes to individual participants, important contributions were also made to some critical business wide challenges set by the Scania (GB) executive management team.
Participants on the programme said: "Excellent course and week." "Speed and pace of delivery was excellent." "At times I felt out of my comfort zone, the modules pushed me to new limits, I feel the progamme has created a more positive me." "... feel empowered that I can make some small changes that can have a big impact."
Whilst Laurence Medina - Head of Learning, Development and Process Improvement said: "Good leadership is key to every successful company; that’s why at Scania (Great Britain) Limited, we have made Leadership a part of our development priorities. Our Leadership course is one of the pillars of this success and increasingly creates groups of leaders who evolve, take ownership for our challenges and work as a network. The ILM recognition of our course just confirms we are doing the right thing for our employees and the company."
